The Lonely is a personal/collaborative project that intends to show male beauty in an intimate way. With a natural yet bold touch, the language of solitude exerts an intrinsic force and reveals all its depth. It shows that the beauty of male intimacy is present in daily life and this should be portrayed, as well as female beauty. It is an indirect way of saying – I am Here – not to transgress, but to transpose.
The creative process of photographer Ricardo Rico is introspective and very personal, a discovery of the other, where he lightly extracts his own language. He believes that in this moment of introspection, the true-self arises and the nakedness is only a detail before a naked soul in itself. To translate this aesthetic, he draws the man in a light, elegant, seductive and discreet manner. It transits into several stories. So is your work, a little of the other, a little of yourself and both are complete.
